LG demos 20 MP camera module with advanced OIS, can we say G4?

Z4 before that.The angular shake correction of the new OIS module has been improved 50%, and it has been mounted on the 20 MP camera sensor, for a complete package that is not official yet, but is apparently ready to enter LG phones next year. We'd wager to bet that this will be precisely the module that will find its way in the next-gen G4 flagship of the company, and might make it the first 20 MP camera module on a smartphone that will be optically-stabilized as well, unless Sony comes up with the OIS-ed
Interestingly enough, Samsung also showed its first OIS system at the exhibition, the one that is in the Note 4, and claimed that it is the most sophisticated unit currently in a phone, doubling the angular correction, compared to LG's piece. Given the excellent video quality that the Note 4 is capable of churning out, we tend to agree with Samsung on the quality of their OIS module, and hope it will be included in the Galaxy S6, too, or whatever the next flagship is titled.
The module might find its way into the G Pro 3 first.

Sony should do something about the 8mp on default zed series while these 13,16mp are looking so great.now looks like next year will be seeing 20mp and OIS+ greatness.

Bugger... do I bear with my laggy S3 a while longer and wait for the G4, or just get the G3 now??? The Nexus 6 is out of the running too... too big, too pricey, made by scammy Motorola who don't honour their warranty.

"...might make it the first 20 MP camera module on a smartphone that will be optically-stabilized as well" I'm confused... Dont the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 930 already have 20MP cameras with OIS ? Am I missing something ? EDIT - Just noticed someone had already pointed that out
